Fleabag and Chernobyl, two of the breakout Brit hits of 2019, will be competing for prizes at the 46th annual Broadcasting Press Guild Awards in London on March 13.
Sky and HBO’s Chernobyl scooped more nominations than any other show, and will compete in four categories including Best Drama Series at the awards, which are voted on by the UK’s best television, radio and media journalists.
Craig Mazin is up for Best Writer for his gripping retelling of the Soviet nuclear disaster, while Jared Harris and Emily Watson are competing for Best Actor and Best Actress respectively.
Both shows have been hot tickets during awards season, scooping a total of four Golden Globes and 16 Emmys. Fleabag was made by Two Brothers Pictures, while Chernobyl was a Sister Pictures production.
Elsewhere, Channel 4’s Stephen Graham drama The Virtues has three nominations, including Best Actor, while Glenda Jackson is up for a prize for her turn in BBC One’s Elizabeth is Missing. Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa is among the nominees for the Breakthrough award, and in non-scripted, BAFTA-winning For Sama is competing for Best Single Documentary.
